What I Wore on Saturday, February 20, 2016

Posted 2/22/2016

On Saturday, February 20, I wore this fabulous late 40s/early 50s pink knit jacket with gold metallic thread woven through it.I found this at Dorothea's Closet Vintage several years ago.

The jacket does not have a label, & looks as if it might have been handmade. I'm also thinking it may have had a matching skirt -- probably narrow -- with it at one time. This is one of my favorite vintage jackets -- both for it's color & the way it fits, plus I love the cut of the sleeves. I'm also carrying a 40's snakeskin purse that I picked up through one of the vintage Facebook groups I belong to.

With my outfit, I wore a necklace & pair of earrings I made last fall. I made the necklace out of old watch (& watch fob) parts, a couple of old keys, a heart, & several pieces of vintage chain.

I made the earrings out of crinoid fossils that I found at the fall lapidary show here in Des Moines & an old bead, that I wire-wrapped with brass wire.
